New York Mets Invite 50 Cent Back to Redeem Himself After Horrible First Pitch

Back in May 2014, rapper and entertainer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson delivered arguably the worst first pitch in MLB history ahead of a game between the New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates at Citi Field. 

He wants an opportunity to redeem himself. 

As Neil Best of Newsday explained, Jackson admitted he let his emotions get the better of him on that infamous afternoon while speaking about the pitch during a promotional interview for his new movie, Den of Thieves, this past Monday. 

"I'm like, this is what happens when the fanfare and the energy of the people is involved and you start trying to get fancy and try to throw the ball harder than you have to," he said. 

He later admitted he wanted a second chance. 

Somebody running social media for the Mets noticed, and the club replied to Jackson via Twitter on Thursday afternoon: 

We recommend Jackson takes several practice throws from the bullpen before the real thing.
